    Ali and Finn to miss England's first two tour matches

    Middlesex seamer will be monitored for seven days after pair sustained injuries in Perth

    Scans have revealed that Steven Finn (left knee) and Moeen Ali (left side) will miss England's first two warm-up matches of their tour of Australia.

    The Middlesex seamer, Finn, will be monitored by the England medical department over the next seven days and a further decision on his fitness will be made at that time. He sustained the injury during practice at Richardson Park, Perth on Thursday November 2 and sat out training today at the WACA.

    All-rounder Ali has aggravated his left side. He will miss the first two tour matches against the WA XI starting tomorrow (Saturday) at the WACA, Perth and the four-day match against CA XI at the Adelaide Oval commencing on Wednesday November 8. He is expected to return to full training by mid-November ahead of the tour match in Townsville starting on Wednesday November 15.
